Chapter 7.4 Double team
As promised, Hershey granted his older brother the air-time he deserved. Twix, being a smart cookie, utilized this time wisely and decided to take Whitney to a nearby lake; not to drown her, but to pop the question.After much fumbling, he managed to open up the box and reveal the ultra sparkly engagement ring to Whitney, who had been waiting for his proposal pretty much since the day Hershey had proposed to Allyson.Still, she managed to feign her surprise, and all in all, it was a pleasant engagement.‘I like sparkly things,’ Whitney stated. She stood there staring at her engagement ring for the next five hours. Twix got bored after two hours and left her to it.In the end, Twix and Hershey ended up having a double wedding. It was a practical idea considering how long wedding parties seem to take in the Sim world.As expected, they wedded in the same location Cointreau and Jeffrey had, mainly because the scenery was fabulous for photographs. Naturally, Twix and Whitney were first to exchange vows, being the stars of this generation and all (well, for the time being).‘Check us out, doing adult stuff!’Aero was the only family member who held a small trace of resentment because he wished he could of had a fancy wedding.Instead, all he got was a crappy off-camera notification.Who this “close friend” was, no one knew, not even Aero.Still, it was a beautiful ceremony. And most importantly, there was cake.Earl, who was the only one still alive from generation 6, actually only showed up because of this.Oh, and Allyson almost got married to the wrong guy, who happened to be Samuel McNeil.He had split up with Bounty a few months ago, after finally finding out that she had deliberately stopped taking her contraceptive pill.Fortunately, Hershey stepped in just in time and told Samuel where to stick it. And so, they were married and all were happy.Well, all except for Tremayne as he managed to miss the weddings by -you guessed it- shorting-out after trying to down a bottle of tequila.
